DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women's ice hockey team participated at the 3rd Annual CelebratePink 5K Road Race & Walk that was held Sept. 17 in Portsmouth and donated $2,200 as a fund raising effort that benefitted BreastCancerStories.org and My Breast Cancer Support in the greater seacoast New Hampshire and Maine area.
All 21 members of the team, as well as assistant coach Stephanie Jones, ran the 5K course together as a group.
My Breast Cancer Support is here to help local patients who are being treated for breast cancer to stay on a path toward emotional wellness and healing. We aspire to provide the support tools they need to find a comfortable balance between life and treatment - to lend a hand, to educate, to ease their discomfort, and to help them to find strength and encouragement as they begin to embrace their new normal.
BreastCancerStories.org gives Breast Cancer Patients and Care Givers access to virtual hugs and support from family members as well as other Patients and Care Givers across the globe going through a similar experience. Having just launched in the summer of 2006, more than 10,000 people log on every month to post and read stories about the trials of breast cancer and the triumphs of surviving the disease that claims the lives of far too many people every year.
